Default VMWare Fusion (Mac) Beta 4

VMWare Fusion is an application for Intel-based Macs that enables a user to run OS X, Windows (including Vista Ultimate 64-bit edition), Linux, and Solaris apps simultaneously, no reboots required. According to the developer, the program allows you “to harness the full power of your Mac hardware, while still suporting Windows-only applications, USB 2.0 devices, 64-bit, and accelerated 3D graphics.”

Beta 4 is available now (free download). For a limited (but unstated) period, you can also pre-order the final version of the $80 program (expected later this year) for $40.

I do not have an Intel Mac so have not used Parallels or other system-sharing programs, but on paper at least, VMWare Fusion seems to be the most ambitious of them all.

More information at the VMWare site.
